OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).

Note : In order to know which drivers package to use, match the audio specifications of your motherboard with the apps or ask me.


TIPS :

If you want to manage the drivers (remove old/unused drivers for example) that you have in your Windows DriverStore
Use Driver Store Explorer (Right click on "Rapr.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you want better interrupts delivery latency
Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with
MSI Mode Utility (Right click on "MSI_Mode_Utility_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

@MoKiChU great job! I've been following your work for a long time. Thx.

Hello @MoKiChU

Sorry for wasting your time, but I'm a little newbie here.

I got TUF GAMING B550-PLUS with AMD Ryzen 5 5600 and in ASUS official page is this driver:

Realtek audio driver V6.0.8971.1 For Windows 10 64-bit.
Version: 6.0.8971.1
85.16 MB
2020/09/10
I install it, but it has not equalizer (seem's like I'm not only here on this forum with this problem...)
You probably fix this somewhere here, but it's 278 pages already and I cannot found correct.
Can u share me a post with correct one?
Thanks and greetings.

Hi,

You have an ASUS TUF DTS Custom motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS TUF/PRIME DTS Custom) from the first post of this thread.

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Also about EQ, since you have an ASUS TUF DTS Custom motherboard, it is by design, it's intended to work like this at least for ASUS products : If a third party app is built-in (DTS Custom in your case), the equalization is done via the third party app/drivers.

@MoKiChU Oh, I kinda see it now. My key was to just put volume up to maximum and I kinda get it now. I can do it on DTS, but I must use one of 3 modes (surround mode, soundscape, 3d sound effect). There is no way to not use any of them (or I'm just stupid and cannot off it), but have a +15dB vol up?

Or better question is it possible to install this realtek without this ****** DTS? Because when I delete DTS Drivers by using DriverStoreExplorer Equalizer is finally showing up in Realtek Console, but not working

Since you are new here I wouldn't hold it against you, but as reminded to everyone in my previous post, I don't work for ASUS (everything I do for the ASUS ROG community is out of passion, on a voluntary basis). If you would like to know more about your motherboard features, please contact ASUS Support (I cannot answer all your questions about the use of your hardware/software for each of you, even if I wanted to).

If you get rid of DTS drivers, the EQ will be unhided from Realtek Audio Console but not functional (since your equalizer is based on DTS APO Drivers).

As workaround (at your own risk, this is obsolete for your motherboard) :

- Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process.
- Download Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers (HDA - ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME DTS&RTK) from the first post of this thread : [DRIVERS] Realtek Audio (Intel 6x/7x/8x/9x/1xx & AMD Legacy 6xx/7xx/8xx/9xx).
- Follow scrupulously the INSTALL process from ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME Realtek motherboards category.

@MoKiChU Old drivers are working, EQ is working and also I can do sound with front and back so it's perfect (was a little tricky, for other with same problem, just make a situation that sound is moving from front and back and exit with X, don't use OK button)

I'm gonna check one more time on fresh installation first option to be sure that this DTS is that bad as I think (on my DTS I cannot do a random mode, I must choose sound effect which is terrible). Thank you men. Really thanks.

I use Sound FX now with your drivers. It has EQ. Thanks @MoKiChU

Hello,

I have this mobo: https://rog.asus.com/motherboards/rog-strix/rog-strix-x570-e-gaming-model/

I tried following the instructions and installing this package: Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS)
I'm on Windows 10 all updates.

Everything seems to be working, except the one thing I've been struggling to activate: I don't see any way to activate DTS (DD would be fine too) on my optical output. I only have 2 speakers.
Attached there's a DTS 5.1 system.

Am I using the wrong driver? Is there anything I can try?
Thank you!

Hi,

You are using the correct drivers (Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS)) for your motherboard (ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard).

It's not a drivers related issue, your motherboard built-in audio controller/licence can only :

- SPDIF port : Output only Stereo PCM, so no 5.1/7.1 PCM (uncompressed) and no upmix/encoding to 5.1/7.1 DTS/Dolby (compressed).
- 3.5mm jack port : Output only Stereo PCM or 5.1/7.1 PCM (uncompressed), so no upmix to 5.1/7.1 DTS/Dolby (compressed).

The choices you have :

- If you want keep using SPDIF port :

- Your audio equipment should be able to do the upmix processing on its side (Stereo PCM to 5.1).
- Purchase a dedicated sound card with upmix/encoding to 5.1 DTS/Dolby (compressed).

- If you want try to switch to 3 x 3.5mm jack port (5.1), please refer to this FAQ : [Motherboard] Audio I/O connections setting and Audio 2, 4, 5.1 or 7.1-channel configuration.

Note : The Stereo audio content will be played in Stereo and not be upmixed in 5.1 PCM, only the audio content in 5.1 PCM (uncompressed) will be played in 5.1 PCM. However, SS3 can upmix all audio content to 5.1 PCM (or virtualize 7.1/3D audio content in 5.1) by enabling the Upmix / Surround effect feature from SS3 app.

Also, if your audio equipment is DTS:X or Dolby Atmos compatible, I would advise you not to use the built-in motherboard audio controller for your audio equipment, and go through the HDMI port of your iGPU or your GPU with DTS Sound Unbound (built-in with your motherboard) or Dolby Access.

Everyone : I remind you that I don't work for ASUS (everything I do for the ASUS ROG community is out of passion, on a voluntary basis). If you would like to know more about your motherboard features, please contact ASUS Support (I cannot answer all your questions about the use of your hardware/software for each of you, even if I wanted to).

Hi! I have a Crosshair VIII Dark Hero and I would like to know if it's normal, with your latest drivers, that I have Sonic Studio Virtual Mixer disabled in audio controller section inside device management on Windows 11?
